GW visits the Little Greene Factory in Wales

Here at GW of St Clears, we believe that is really important is to work very closely with the brands that we stock to ensure we fully understand who we are working with, how they work and why they do what they do. If we don’t know this, then it makes it pretty hard for us to promote them and their products to our customers with confidence.dscn0011One thing that we like to do is to get out of the office and go visit our suppliers on site so we can see where they work and meet the team in person. Back in November we were luckily enough to be invited to visit the team at Little Greene. We have been stocking Little Greene paint products since August 2012 and we thought a factory visit was well overdue. So Rhys and Adriana took a trip to North Wales to get acquainted with their favourite paint supplier.At the factory they were met by Andy Greenall, Design Manager at Little Greene. “The reason we held the event is that there’s so much to talk about, from the way we make the paint and why it’s better, to the way we create a wallpaper collection and how we manage the brand,” says Andy.dscn0009Little Greene paints are made with the finest ingredients and up to 40% more pigment than ordinary paints.  This complex formulation results in a profound and unequalled depth of colour with undertones that subtly change in different lights, providing real character and definition.  And we have it on good authority that the paint also provides the best coverage of any paint on the market.wales-factory-3-4It is reasons like this that made Little Greene an obvious choice of supplier for GW of St Clears. “Little Greene is a British company with a production facility in Wales,” says Adriana. “It produces a range of paints that surpasses its competitors in terms of coverage and durability and a beautiful colour palette with numerous shades and tones of colours to choose from.”The factory tour was a great experience that both Rhys and Adriana enjoyed. “It was great to see where and how the paint is produced and the factory itself is an impressive an old Art Deco building that is painted in a lovely shade of green,” says Adriana.Whilst at the factory Adriana and Rhys were also shown images of the Little Greene retail outlets in Paris and in Holland and really got the impression that the company understands exactly what retailers are up against. “The Paris store looked more like a couture shoe shop than a paint supplier,” says Adriana. “The whole atmosphere of this company gives you a sense of uniqueness that is embraced by the GW designers and passed on to the GW clients. GW customers will be happy to know that we are now stocking a range of Little Greene wallpapers that feature many designs drawn from the extensive English Heritage archive and that are reproduced in colours to suit period and contemporary interiors. And not only that! We will be increasing our stock and variety of paint bases ready for our in-house mixing service, as and when we require the colours for both our complete supply and installation projects and for our supply only customer. So we are all set and we look forward to HELPING YOU ACHIEVE YOUR PERFECT HOME INTERIOR & all your DECORATING needs in 2013! “Let’s Make it a Year to Remember”
